Shinabi Jizoson

Shinabi Jizoson

Once upon a time, there was a family called Shinabi in Horie village. Oneday, a master of the family found a Jisoson without its head in a burnt field when he went to Edo for his business. He promised to it to fix its head. Soon after he took it to his house and prayed for cure his skin disease, his skin recovered. Then he fixed it and dedicated it carefully.
Later, the Shinabi was adapted into Ikeda Family, and the Jizo was moved to the Ikeda's resident. In 1963, Nichiin, the 19th chief priest of Shofukuji Temple, built a shrine to dedicate the Jizo in the site as the resident was rebuilt.
Even now, many people who find the miracle power of Shinabi Jizo visit the temple and pray.

Jogyodo

Jogyodo is a hall or a shrine where Jogyo Bosatsu is dedicated in.
This statue of Jogyo Bosatsu was dedicated by the venerable Kenmyoin Nisshin, the 17th chief priest, in March 1895.
Jogyo Bosatsu is one of the four Bosatsu such as Jogyo, Muhengyo, Jogyo and Anritsugyo Bosatu, who could save people and all living things in the end of the world where Buddhism would be declined and the world be corrupted. Jogyo means that one do everything clean.
